When you were here you brightened the day,
with your positive attitude and charming smile.

I loved when I came up to you for a hug,
you wrapped your arms around me and gave me a little shrug.

When I looked into your eyes so bright, they were filled with so much joy,
every time we played wiffle ball and I fell, you would always say, "Oh boy."

Then when you got sick, my heart just broke and I started to cry, 'cause God took the joy out of your eyes and the brightness from the sky.

Your smile has faded and it's barely a grin and now you seem so hopeless 'cause the cancer worked its way in.

There's nothing I can do now, the joy's almost gone,
now that bright smile and grin are gone, 'cause God decided he needed you now so he brought you up, up past the sun to a place where all your pain is gone.

Every time it rains now, I think of you, shedding your love over all of us you've left behind.

You'll never be forgotten and you're forever missed.

You were an amazing husband, father, grandfather, brother, and an awesome friend.
